True enough but I don't remember hearing about it until the seventies when I started making science programs for PBS. I will have to refresh my memory on this one. My recollection is that Continental Drift was considered a theory, sort of like Global Climate Change and you will have to ask the New Yorker's about that one.

A much lesser known factoid is that Alfred Wegener also coined the phrase "you get my drift?"

This was revived in the '60s and gave birth to the hippie movement.

That saying has since been shelved on most continents.

Though some of you may take this forum for granite, being fairly new here I'm not sure about this some of this schist. I'm just here to relax and have a gneiss time.
